Each Monday Cathy at Rambling In The Garden invites us to share a vase highlighting what is growing in our gardens.
I gathered blooms early on this frosty morning. Since then the thermometer has risen to 69°.
The temperament of spring is fresh, cheerful and light-hearted and the flowers featured today are convincing ambassadors of the season. I photographed them in several locations—none of the spots was a clear winner but the cup of springtime treasures seemed to smile in each one. Hope they bring a smile to you today.
Visible in the background are the phalaenopsis orchids that graciously rebloomed recently.
Camellia x ‘Coral Delight’ is elegant in form and color. This is my only spring-blooming camellia.
After a few years Leucojum has formed a nice clump and perhaps can be divided. I grouped the stems together in the vase for more impact against the showier anemone.
Thalia daffodils are just beginning to open. They may well be the favorites among my garden’s narcissus. I massed them as well to one side.
